In late 1979, Ayatollah Khomeini headed a revolution in Iran. The Shah sought refuge in the West. American citizens were held hostage for 444 days. When Ronald Reagan became President, the hostages were released. Throughout this grievous period of American history, the Administration in power continued to assure America that Khomeini’s regime was destined to be ‘short-lived’ weeks or months at the most and that Iran’s actions toward us were not justified. Eli Mellor strongly disagreed with this characterization. On December 16, 1979, ‘The Los Angeles Times’ published Eli Mellor’s first manuscript questioning the Administration’s rationale for this nation’s stance during the hallmark crisis. Mr. Mellor’s manuscript was subsequently published in the ‘Washington Post’, ‘The New York Times’, ‘The Boston Globe’ and various newspapers throughout the country; more than (22) twenty-two million copies worldwide. Ronald Reagan changed his national campaign slogan in 1980 and adopted “The Time Is Now”, the title of Mr. Mellor’s publication. The principles and perceptions enumerated in the first of what are now three manuscripts, served to invigorate certain policy makers. Amplifying upon his earlier works, on December 16, 1990 (11) eleven years, to the day later, Eli Mellor took his message to the cold streets of Washington D.C. He helped organize and lead the largest anti-war demonstration since Vietnam. In just (30) thirty short days, over 340,000 demonstrators converged on Pennsylvania Avenue with Eli Mellor and his message and second manuscript, “The Time is Still Now” at the forefront. Eleven years later, on December 14, 2001, just five weeks after 9/11, The Washington Times published Eli Mellor’s third manuscript, “The Time Was-or Is Still Now”. Four years before, in Eli’s simple thesis: “Twelve Good Reasons Why The Time Is Now” he identified twelve social impediments we face as citizens and reveals the means to overcome them, Mellor stated, “We can no longer trust our government or ‘the status quo’ to lead or tell us the truth. In the near future key American institutions will be threatened and major corporations will come together to control citizens’ minds, assets and manipulate their attention. The middle class will disappear”, he told his supporters in 1997. Today, his decades of warnings and forecasts have become clear reality. Truth is, Eli Mellor was right along. For more than 35 years, Mr. Mellor’s manuscripts and dire warnings have represented a stark prognostication of events to come. His unique style and the questions he asks goes to the heart of the origins of social decay and transformation in Western Civilization. The integrity of his apocalyptic wisdom continues to withstand the test of time. In his “Anthologies of Eli”, Mellor’s “Think on This” excerpts delves deep, examining human behavior, offering us a new language to open new doors and begin healing the souls of all people. In so doing, his work promises to help generations to come and shorten this calamity by identifying long held social misperceptions (beliefs) and the failed policies they created which, if left unattended , will continue to morph into even more effective tools of a ruthless slave master resulting, he predicts, in an unprecedented contentious setback for humankind; second only to the ‘great fall’. Mr. Mellor is an insightful and provocative thinker. Everyone can benefit and enhance their personal well-being from his distinguished insight.
